If there's one universal truth, it's that all of our bodies begin changing at some point. That's especially true for women who are over the age of 50. One day it seems like we're rolling out of bed with a pep in our step. The next, our emotions are out of control, our weight won't go down, and we constantly have hot flashes. If that sounds like you, don't worry â millions of other women worldwide are going through the same difficulties.
The fact of the matter is these symptoms are part of a natural process women go through. This change, called menopause, marks the end of a woman's ability to reproduce and menstruate. The average age for this to occur is 51, though it officially begins a year after a woman's final period. During this transition to menopause, estrogen and other hormones in a woman's body start to deplete When those hormones deplete, frequent and sometimes severe symptoms can manifest:
The symptoms of hormone deficiency can be scary for both women and their partners. That makes dealing with a hormone deficiency tricky because many symptoms are tied to nutrition, stress, lack of exercise, and toxins in your body.
However, if you're getting older and dealing with some of the symptoms listed above, have hope. A solution to your hormone problems may be closer than you think. Hormone replacement therapy for women may help correct imbalances caused by menopause. These effective, safe treatments help many women throughout the menopause process and may even help them reclaim their youth.
To live a healthy life, hormone stability is very important for women. That's where the beauty of HRT treatments for women begins to shine because it balances hormones that would otherwise be altered due to menopause.
HRT treatments for women represent a revolutionary step toward living life without the pitfalls of old age. However, at Juventee, we understand that no two women, and by proxy, patients, are the same. That's why our team of doctors and specialists provide personalized treatment options for women, combining holistic treatment, nutrition, fitness plans, and more to supplement our HRT treatments.
Is HRT the answer if you feel exhausted, overweight, and moody? That's the million-dollar question that we're asked almost every day. And to be honest, it's hard to say without a comprehensive exam by an HRT expert at Juventee. What we can say is that when a woman's hormones are better balanced during menopause, she has a much better chance of enjoying life without the crippling symptoms that other women feel.
At Juventee, helping women reclaim their vitality and love of life is our top priority. While some HRT clinics see patients as nothing more than a means to make money, our team is cut from a different cloth.
The key to balancing your hormones and improving your well-being is a process that we have refined over time. The Juventee HRT process consists of a comprehensive review of your health and hormonal status. Our team then customizes your plan and prescribes treatments, procedures, and supplements under the guidance of our local HRT experts.
At Juventee, we want to revitalize your health by promoting balance, energy, intimacy, and beauty. We start by assessing your baseline biomarkers and implementing a personalized plan to help you feel like your younger self. Our in-depth process covers many factors, almost like a web. Each component of that web works in conjunction with others to make up how you feel. If one area is out of sync, women can experience unwanted fluctuations in their weight, energy, emotions, libido, and more. Juventee is committed to evaluating our patient's overall health so that we may bring vitality and happiness to as many aspects of their lives as possible.
We've mentioned all the greatness that can come with an HRT regimen from Juventee, but what exactly are the benefits of HRT for women? Let's take a look.
We Work With
Unlike some HRT clinics, Juventee's HRT programs are carefully crafted and personalized for each patient. There are no cookie-cutter solutions at our office. Instead, we assess each individual's needs and customize treatments to help their bodies as they age. We replace hormones that are deficient and restore them to their physiological state using HRT pellets.
These hormone pellets are prescription hormones inserted under the skin through a simple in-office procedure. Each pellet is about as large as a big grain of rice. Once inserted, our HRT pellets get to work quickly. With this treatment, patients don't have to worry about applying greasy creams or swallowing pills. Instead, our pellets are metabolized by the body. That way, patients don't stress over taking too much or too little.
Remember, at Juventee, our goal isn't just to balance your hormones â it's to completely optimize your health and well-being. You won't ever have to worry about our doctors writing you a prescription and sending you on your way without any additional communication. Instead, we aim to be part of our patient's journey back to health and work with all of our HRT patients to do so.
Hormone imbalance causes a litany of issues. But with hormone replacement therapy, females can better process calcium, keep their cholesterol levels safe, and maintain a healthy vagina. By replenishing the body's estrogen levels, HRT may relieve symptoms of menopause and even optimize bone health.
But that's just the start. At Juventee, our patients report many benefits of taking HRT for women:
If you're ready to feel better and enjoy the vitality of your youth, Juventee is here to help you every step of the way. It all starts with an in-person evaluation, where our team will determine if HRT is right for you.
For many women, menopause is a difficult time filled with ups, downs, and hormonal hurdles to overcome. While menopausal issues are well-known by some, other women only know that menopause can affect their hormones. The reality is that going through menopause can mean more than moodiness and hot flashes.
At Juventee, we're big believers that a little knowledge can go a long way. With that in mind, if you're going through menopause or are approaching "that" age, consider these common issues. First, let's examine some alternative causes of menopause beyond age:
The most common reason for menopause is diminished, unbalanced hormones. However, menopause can also result from:
Now that we've examined some of the ways that menopause manifests, let's look at some common problems that females regularly endure:
If you're going through menopause and feel like life is a tiresome burden, you're not alone. Studies show that 15% of women go through depression to some degree during menopause. What many women don't learn is that depression may start much earlier, during perimenopause or even earlier.
Depression can be hard to diagnose, even without perimenopause and menopause as a factor. With that said, keep the following signs in mind. If you notice any, it might be time to speak with a physician:
If you notice any of the signs above, it's important that you understand that you're not weak or broken. You're going through a very normal emotional experience, which may be caused by hormone deficiency. However, with proper treatment from your doctor, depression doesn't have to rule your life.
You don't have to have hormonal imbalances to have mood swings. Indeed, everyone gets moody from time to time. For women going through menopause, however, mood swings can be extreme and happen often. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go together, resulting in unusual emotional changes and even issues like insomnia.
Estrogen production, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, affects serotonin production, which regulates mood. When both hormones are deficient, mood swings can become quite prevalent.
Fortunately, HRT treatments in Guttenberg, NJ, work wonders for women because they work to regulate hormones like estrogen. With HRT from Juventee, women don't have to settle for the negative consequences that drastic mood swings can cause.
Hot flashes: whether you're a man or a woman, you've probably heard of them. Hot flashes are very common issues associated with menopause and manifest as intense, sudden feelings of heat across the upper body. Some last a few seconds while others last many minutes, making them uncomfortable and inconvenient at all times. A few common symptoms of hot flashes include:
Usually, a lack of estrogen causes hot flashes in menopausal women. Low levels of estrogen negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, or the part of the brain that regulates appetite and body temperature. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to assume incorrectly that the body is too hot. When it does, it dilates a woman's blood vessels to boost blood flow.
Fortunately, most women don't have to settle for the intense, unwanted feelings they endure with hot flashes. HRT pellet treatment from Juventee helps to stabilize hormones which may lessen the effects that hot flashes cause.
Staying healthy and fit is a challenge for anybody living in modern America. For women with hormonal imbalances, however, it's even harder. Weight gain is a concerning issue during menopause, but it can be manageable with a physician-led diet, exercise, and HRT treatments from Juventee.
HRT patients at Juventee benefit from health plans that keep hormones in check, making weight loss a real possibility. But which hormones need to be regulated to help avoid weight gain?
Millions of adults around the U.S. suffer from low sex drive, but that doesn't make it any more embarrassing to talk about. For many women going through pre-menopause and menopause, it's an unfortunate side effect of unbalanced hormones. Thankfully, HRT may help women maintain a healthy libido, even after 50. But what causes lowered sexual desire in women as they age?
The hormones responsible for low libido in females are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, resulting in lowered libido in some women. Lower progesterone production can also cause weight gain, exhaustion, and other symptoms common during menopause. Reduced estrogen levels during menopause may lead to vaginal dryness and even loss of muscle tension.
Testosterone is referred to as a male hormone, but it contributes to important health functionality in women as well. Female testosterone heightens sexual responses and intensifies orgasms. When the ovaries can't produce sufficient levels of testosterone, low sex drive can happen.
The inside of a woman's bones is broken down and rebuilt by bone cells in an ongoing process called remodeling. This process is crucial for maintaining bone strength and health.
However, due to the loss of estrogen during menopause, this important process becomes unbalanced. Less bone is formed, and more bone is broken down. This advanced state of bone loss can be worrying for women, especially if they had an early menopause. With time, women may develop osteoporosis and a greater chance of breaking bones as they age.
Fortunately, HRT for women can actually mimic estrogen and progesterone, which may help prevent bone loss and lower chances of osteoporosis in women. That's huge news for women around the U.S., many of whom are battling early bone loss due to a lack calcium, vitamin D, and other nutrients crucial to bone health.

Update - February 7, 2023: The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) certificate for Advanced Women Imaging, located at 6414 Bergenline Avenue, West New York, NJ (Bergenline) was revoked until January 4, 2025. The facility is currently unaccredited, uncertified, and cannot legally perform mammography. Additionally, the FDA has identified two individuals that qualify as owners or operators at the time of the violations: Saifulla K. Chaudhary and Zainab Shahid (also known as Zainab Chaudhary). These individuals may not own or operate a facility that requires a certificate under the MQSA for two years, starting January 4, 2023.
Patients who scheduled mammograms at Bergenline, and whose mammography was performed at the 560 or 560A 60th Street location in Guttenberg (also known as West New York), NJ 07093 or at 538 62nd Street, West New York, NJ 07093, should follow the FDA’s recommendations provided below.
Date Issued: May 21, 2021
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting patients who had mammograms at Advanced Women Imaging, located in Guttenberg, NJ, on or after March 11, 2020, about possible problems with the quality of their mammograms.
A mammogram is a safe, low-dose, X-ray picture of the breast. It is currently the most effective primary screening method for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages.
The FDA became aware of problems associated with the quality of mammograms performed at:
Advanced Women Imaging 560A 60th Street Guttenberg, NJ 07093
The facility’s annual MQSA inspection indicated that required quality control tests were not performed from March 11, 2020, through August 25, 2020. As a result, the FDA notified the facility that it was required to undergo an Additional Mammography Review (AMR) to determine if the overall quality of mammography performed at the facility was compromised due to the failure of the facility to operate in compliance with the MQSA, and whether there was a need to notify affected patients.
The American College of Radiology (ACR), at the request of the FDA, contacted the facility to request the clinical images and documentation needed to conduct the AMR of mammograms performed at Advanced Women Imaging. The facility did not comply with the ACR’s request. On September 12, 2020, the facility’s accreditation expired, and on September 15, 2020, the FDA notified the facility that it was no longer certified and must cease performing mammography.
Under the MQSA, the FDA requires that all mammography facilities meet certain baseline quality standards and be certified to legally operate in the United States. This facility did not meet the standards for mammography quality under the MQSA. This facility may not legally perform mammography at this time, as it does not have an active MQSA certificate.
The FDA will continue to monitor this issue and keep the public informed as new information becomes available. At this time, the FDA recommends that patents contact Advanced Women Imaging to gain access to their medical records.
If you have questions about this communication, please contact the Mammography Quality Standards Act Hotline by phone: 1-800-838-7715, email: [email protected] or fax: 1-443-285-0689.

Commissioner Cosmo A. Cirillo on Friday night formally announced his intention to run for mayor of West New York along with running mates Assemblywoman Angelica M. Jimenez, Commissioner Margarita Guzman, longtime residents Hiram Gonzalez and Walter Lopez.
West New York Forward.
Cirillo and his running mates will kick-off their campaign with the grand opening of the West New York Forward headquarters at 6317 Hudson Avenue, West New York in New Jersey on Sunday, February 5, 2023, at 12:00 P.M.
Cirillo’s connection to West New York began when his grandparents immigrated with his father to the United States from Italy in 1972 and chose to call West New York their home. His family has lived here ever since. From a young age, Cirillo said he has exhibited a strong passion to serve the community, beginning his journey in government at the ripe age of 16 where he interned for the Town of West New York.
At the age of 20, Cirillo was appointed to the West New York Board of Education where he served for over four years, including two as its president. He has also served as the ABC board secretary and the deputy town clerk for West New York. As town administrator in the nearby Town of Guttenberg, Commissioner Cirillo currently applies his experience in municipal government to focus on senior services and recreation. He is proud to represent the residents of West New York as the youngest individual to become a commissioner within the town, bringing a fresh perspective to local government.
“I’m a lifelong resident with deep roots in the community and I possess a strong sense of governmental experience that I plan to employ when elected mayor,” Commissioner Cirillo stated. “I am an active community leader with a strong track record of delivering on the promises I have made. As mayor, I want to continue fulfilling those promises by working with my colleagues to improve our community, build recreation systems that will offer quality family activities, and expand resources to support our diverse business community.”
Running for commissioner is Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez, who is serving her sixth term in the State of New Jersey General Assembly. She serves as chair of the Human Services Committee, vice-chair of the Housing Committee, and on the Health Committee. Since taking office Assemblywoman Jimenez’ impact as a legislator has been felt statewide. She has been an advocate for New Jersey families, spearheading important bills on education and immigration, such as bill A-4743, which supports driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Commissioner Margarita Guzman is running for re-election. She has a passion for education and public service stemming from a family rooted in educators and lawyers. Commissioner for the Housing Authority, and then as the vice chairwoman for the Hudson County Democratic Organization, Commissioner Guzman brings a wealth of experience and understanding in municipal government and redevelopment.
Also joining Cirillo’s slate in West New York is longtime resident Hiram Gonzalez, a former sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. After serving the country for five and a half years, Gonzalez received a bachelor’s degree in accounting and worked as finance manager for the National Football League (NFL) and later on as assistant director for Columbia University, College of Dental Medicine. Currently, he is the assistant finance director for the Town of Guttenberg.
Building on the experience of his running mates, Walter Lopez pledges to use his experience as the former director of redevelopment for the West New York Housing Authority to help identify pragmatic solutions that will combat homelessness while ensuring the safety of senior citizens and families living in the buildings. He is currently working as a code enforcement officer and housing inspector for the town with a focus on making sure its residents are in a healthy and safe environment.
Pillars of West New York Forward include:
“I want to be the type of mayor that people can relate to and feel at ease when voicing their concerns,” concluded Cirillo. “Under my leadership, we will work together to move West New York forward and show the state what our small but vibrant town has to offer.”
Election day is Tuesday, May 9, 2023. To learn more about the campaign, visit West New York Forward’s social media @WNYForward on Facebook and Instagram.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(22/P047) TRENTON – The Murphy Administration marked a milestone in improving the health of New Jersey’s waterways by issuing draft permits to address combined sewer overflows from the North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority Woodcliff Sewage Treatment Plant and the adjoining Town of Guttenberg along the Hudson River in Hudson County, Commissioner of Environmental Protection Shawn M. LaTourette announced today.
The draft New Jersey Pollutant Discharge System (NJPDES) renewal permits issued by the Department of Environmental Protection are the first to be issued that lay out schedules for combined sewer overflow reduction projects under long-term plans to reduce or eliminate combined sewer discharges affecting surface water quality in urban parts of the state.
Specifically, the draft permits set forth the schedule for implementation of combined sewer overflow reduction projects including the ongoing expansion of the Woodcliff treatment plant so that it can accept additional combined sewage flows from North Bergen and Guttenberg. The permits also require North Bergen and the Town of Guttenberg to take other steps to reduce combined sewer overflows such as green infrastructure. These measures are designed to reduce the frequency of combined sewer overflow discharges related to heavy rainfall and snowmelt events.
“Unfortunately, combined sewer systems continue to discharge pollutants to our waterways during storm events and are a huge challenge in older urban areas here in New Jersey and across the country,” Commissioner LaTourette said. “The work that communities and wastewater treatment authorities implement will reduce discharges of combined sewage to our waterways and address flooding related to these discharges in our neighborhoods, which is becoming an increasing problem due to the impacts of climate change.”
Combined sewer systems were designed many decades ago to collect rainwater and snowmelt runoff, domestic sewage, and industrial wastewater in the same pipe. New combined sewer systems are no longer permitted in New Jersey, but many older cities in the state are permitted to continue to operate existing combined sewer systems. Most of these systems are found in the oldest regions of New Jersey, including in the New York-New Jersey Harbor region and in Camden and Gloucester City along the Delaware River in southern New Jersey. Discharges from these systems can be a public health threat by impairing receiving waterways and by causing flooding of streets with combined wastewater and stormwater.
“Members of the Utility & Transportation Contractors Association of New Jersey and our partners in labor stand ready to help the State, local governments and wastewater utility leaders deliver the critical infrastructure projects required by these permits,” said UTCA Executive Director Dave Rible. “We all know that eliminating CSOs in the State of New Jersey will take more than just issuing permits. Therefore, we must all support sustained federal and state funding, increased technical support and compliance assistance. We congratulate and applaud NJDEP leadership and its dedicated staff for taking this critical step.”
“Jersey Water Works members are pleased that the rollout of CSO permits has begun,” said Nicole Miller, Jersey Water Works Co-Chair. “Combined Sewer Overflows present a real danger to the health and safety of New Jerseyans and those water bodies connected to our rivers and streams. We're thankful to the hardworking team at the NJDEP Division of Water Quality for their robust stakeholder engagement process and look forward to working with them, our community partners, small businesses, and affected residents on this and future permits. Jersey Water Works is committed to supporting CSO solutions that provide many benefits for the community cost-effectively.”
“The issue of combined sewer overflows presents an immediate and long-term danger to the safety and health of New Jerseyans in 21 impacted communities or an estimated 1.6 million people,” said New Jersey Future Policy Director Diane Schrauth. “As we anticipate increased flooding in the decades ahead, it is imperative that we shield at-risk communities from harmful waste flooding our streets, streams, and rivers. New Jersey Future appreciates NJDEP’s efforts on this issue and welcomes the release of the first of many CSO permits. Implementing these permits will allow communities to incorporate green infrastructure and climate change preparation to reduce overflows, flooding, and hazards using funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and funding allocated by the Governor and Legislature from the American Rescue Plan Act.”
The DEP has a permit framework that encourages regional collaboration on planning, development, and implementation of projects that began with enhanced public education, information about the problem, and an opportunity for public input.
The permittees were required to advise the public when combined sewer overflows occur, which is continued in this renewal. The DEP is moving into the next important phase of this effort by issuing these NJPDES permits that will lay out schedules for a variety of projects to address combined sewer overflows identified in long-term control plans.
These strategies include infrastructure improvements such as treatment plant expansions, construction of holding tanks, and implementation of green infrastructure projects such as rain gardens to better prevent stormwater from entering the combined sewer systems. In the coming months, the DEP will be issuing similar permits under this framework for additional permittees that includes municipalities with combined sewer systems.
Draft NJPDES permit renewals for the Woodcliff plant and the Town of Guttenberg are available for inspection, by appointment, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., at the DEP building, 401 East State Street, Trenton. Appointment for inspection may be requested through the Office of Records Access. Details are available online at www.nj.gov/dep/opra, or by calling (609) 341-3121. Copies of the draft permits are available on the DEP’s Division of Water Quality website at https://nj.gov/dep/dwq/cso.htm .
The DEP will hold a virtual public hearing to solicit public comment on the draft permits on January 23, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, then again from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (or end of testimony, whichever comes first). This hearing will be conducted virtually via the DEP’s video conferencing software (i.e., Microsoft Teams). A link and a telephone number to the virtual public hearing will be provided on the Department’s NJPDES Division of Water Quality website https://nj.gov/dep/dwq/cso.htm the morning of the hearing.
Comments may be submitted in writing to Susan Rosenwinkel, Chief, or Attention: Comments on Public Notice NJ0029084 and/or NJ0108715, at Mail Code 401-02B, Division of Water Quality, Bureau of Surface Water & Pretreatment Permitting, P.O. Box 420, Trenton, NJ 08625-0420 by the close of the public comment period. Comments via email are also acceptable and can be sent to [email protected]
The public comment period is scheduled to end on February 13, 2023.

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-19) joined Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez (D-32), Guttenberg Mayor Wayne Zitt, and other local officials at the local resource center inside the Galaxy Mall to discuss the ANCHOR property tax relief program this morning.
By John Heinis/Hudson County View
“As you may be aware, the ANCHOR program was recently signed into law and is a very important program for not only property owners throughout Guttenberg and the State of New Jersey, but also for tenants and people that live here,” explained Guttenberg Business Administrator Cosmo Cirillo, who is also a West New York commissioner.
“I can’t thank the legislature more for getting this through … I stand here very proud that we have the speaker in our town, we got a great team here in our town, today’s presentation is exciting: let’s take it in, we have our staff here in the back to assist anybody,” added Zitt.
ANCHOR stands for Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters and replaces the replaces the Homestead Benefit program.
Residents should have received an application from the state Division of Taxation in the past few weeks, which can be sent through the mail or submitted on their website until December 30th.
Coughlin, who succeed Jimenez’s former running mate Vincent Prieto as the assembly speaker in 2018, praised her efforts in Trenton before explaining that the legislature invested $2 billion in property tax relief this time around.
“If your income level is up to $250,000 per family, you get $1,000. If your income level is $150,000 and below, you get $1,500,” Coughlin explained, giving Guttenberg leaders a part on the back for ensuring residents knew how to secure the relief.
” … I’ll gotta tell you: every time I go on the web to try to apply for something, there’s often cursing involved and lots of frustration. But having someone whose skilled at navigating those things is a real benefit to people so I couldn’t compliment you guys more.”
Additionally, Jimenez noted that renters can receive up to $450 in relief.
When one of the three dozen of so in attendance asked what would happen if a household makes more than $250,000, Jimenez joked “I would marry you” to loud laughter from the audience.
“When I received my ANCHOR form, it had a number and a PIN number so it was quick and it was painless … you can either get it via a direct deposit into your account when you get your taxes done or you can get a manual check that will come in May of next year,” she added.
To be eligible, homeowners must have been a New Jersey resident, owned and occupied a home in New Jersey that was their principal residence on October 1st, 2019, paid the 2019 property taxes on their main home, and not earned a gross income of more than $250,000 in 2019.
As for tenants, the requirements are nearly the same, though they must have lived in a unit with separate kitchen and bath facilities and paid rent at a facility that was subject to local property taxes.
They also could not have earned a gross income of more than $150,000 in 2019.

A fire involving a remodeled three-story wood-frame, mixed-occupancy building resulted in a labor-intensive battle by firefighters from the North Hudson Regional Fire & Rescue that protects five Hudson County (NJ) municipalities.
Shortly after 9 p.m., on November 19, 2021, an AFA assignment of three engines, one truck and a battalion chief were dispatched to 201-70th Street in the town of Guttenberg, New Jersey. Police Officer Jabber arrived and reported smoke in the rear of the first-floor restaurant. Upon arrival of the first fire companies, the assignment was filled out, dispatching another engine, truck, rescue, safety officer, rapid intervention team, and Deputy 1.
Firefighters made an interior attack as smoke continued to thicken. All occupants of the restaurant and apartments were removed and a second alarm was transmitted. Interior units reported fire traveling “voids on the ‘C’ side,” and a third alarm was struck by Deputy Chief Mike Falco.
Inside the building, firefighters were compelled to pull tin ceilings to find hidden fire, a labor-intensive operation. Heavy smoke rolled out of the building and covered the neighborhood. Fire eventually broke through the roof of the structure located at the corner of Broadway. Flames attracted a New York TV station news helicopter that flew overhead to cover the story.
Numerous handlines were used along with a lot of “truck work.” The first two ladder companies on the assignment were aerial ladders. The second alarm truck, Tower Ladder 3, was a block away due to the narrow and congested streets that are common in this area. Truckies used an aerial ladder and saws to open up the top-floor sidings on Broadway, where firefighters had difficulty gaining access to flames from the interior. After the heavy fire was knocked down, apparatus was moved from the Broadway side of the building and Tower Ladder 3was placed into position. Firefighters opened up the space along the “B” side of the building to expose the hidden flames and knocked them out with a tower monitor.
One firefighter suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was taken to Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen, where he was treated and released.
The main body of fire was was knocked down around 10:40 p.m. Weary firefighters took breaks outside of the building and walked a block away from the scene to the Gong Club canteen truck for bottled water, hot chocolate, or coffee.
